Ebert was originally paired with fellow Chicago film critic Gene Siskel for the a public television film critic show. In 1986, they signed a contract with Buena Vista Television to syndicate the program under the titles “Siskel & Ebert” or “Siskel and Ebert at the Movies” and became famous for rating movies with a "thumbs up" or a "thumbs down."
